Darwinism Realized.

If you really want to see stupid in action - you should really make it a point to visit Florida during our hurricane season. We are truly, as the adage goes, the shallow end of the country's gene pool.

Every year, countless idiots try and out-stupid each other as soon as the barometric pressure drops. Case in point. During Hurricane Charlie, someone moved their gas-powered generator into their home, and promptly committed suicide.

It's the beginning of the season and we already have a "special kind of stupid" award to the young man who thought it would be the perfect time to Kite Surf.

Sir, at what point did it dawn on you that Mother Nature was not playing around? When she grabbed you in that gale and lifted you 3 stories above the ground, or when she was face-planting you into the parking lot of the hotel...or was it when she had had enough of your stupidness and threw you into the hotel itself?

You are a fucking idiot.

Omigosh! That is a TON of force throwing him around like a fastball pitch. Dang! What in the world could he have been thinking? Hope he was OK.

OMG is right! Did he survive or is he a casualty nominee for the Darwin awards?

He is still in critical care. I mean, really, what was he thinking?

A woman would never do this.

I think the heat has fried that special part of his brain that says things like "don't put your hand in the garbage disposal and then turn it on or don't play with a hurricane because it will bitch slap you."
